Jan & Robin – Home Fries

Being from the southern US, I grew up eating home fries almost every morning, and I still like to make them on weekends topped with an egg for an easy hash. I actually have a scar on my left hand from a grease fire caused by getting the oil too hot whilst making home fries for a class breakfast at 15; I’ve gotten a little better since then. I still have an aversion to frying, and now I put them in the oven. It also helps to use less oil and makes them a little less calorie-heavy.

Jan & Robin – English Breakfast

One of my best friends in the USA works at NYC’s best English restaurant, and as a birthday present to her a few years ago, I surprised her with a full English breakfast.

Jan & Robin – Marinated Beef Tomato, Goat Cheese & Basil

My husband and I just got back from a week-long trip through the UK, where we stayed with friends in Glasgow, hiked through the Scottish countryside, saw the USA Women’s soccer team at the Olympics, and did some sightseeing in London. We managed to squeeze in a quick lunch at Gordon Ramsay’s York & Albany in London before catching a train, and this tomato and goat cheese starter was one of the culinary highlights of the entire trip.

I’ve been working on some new recipes that I can’t wait to post later this week, including a special dinner I made for our 6th wedding anniversary.
